  • An Update On YRC Worldwide [View article]
    The FED is buying 8% of US GDP with QE3/4. This is what has allowed YRC and all other companies in the same boat to restructure time and time again; lose easy money, laying off the risk on STUPID common stock shareholders.

    We are at the end game as bonds are at 300 year highs along with other risk assets. Once the plug is pulled by the FED, ALL COMPANIES with bad balance sheets will go under due to lack of available credit. (Liquidity)

    There will not be a restructure available to YRC in 2015, or any other company, unless we are on QE6, which is possible.

    YRC future is not in YRC's hands, but up to the mercy of the FED and their banking partners.

    Two ways to look at TVIX-did someone take advantage of a situation and cram down the shares with naked shorting-yes most likely.
    Have we been "scammed"-no.

    Keep in mind two things- 1st. The other VIX products have gone down way more then TVIX. They just did it week over week. TVIX got crushed in 1 day. Makes it seem worse, but points wise, TVIX has been the far better performer.

    2nd. We are bottom fishing. When bottom fishing, don't ever assume you have picked the exact bottom. This is just the way the game is played. You have to expect to be wrong-when bottom fishing.

    3rd. Last point. You have to decide what type of investor do you want to be; what kind of risk can you accept? If you want to hit large home runs-then you have to play high volatile plays like TVIX-but have to accept the big swing risk of doing so.
    Or, you can choose to invest in low beta plays, but accept the fact that those stocks don't move more then 10 points in 10 years.

    You have to choose, big risk, big reward-little risk, little reward. That's how the game works.

    Hang in there, the ship will be righted soon!

    Early, remember to always use reverse pshyc when Wall St is talking. What ever they are saying, you can bet they are doing just the opposite.

    TVIX is my fav and will remain so; especially since no new supply is available for now. Also use the XIV for the opposite direction.

    I suggest using a Three Line Break chart and/or Kagi Chart-set at 2% to help with timing entries and exits. Run BBands over top and set your RSI at 5. ( has all this)

    Thank you-Good Luck!

  • Before The Bell-TVIX 3 Pattern Set Up Jan 24th  [View instapost]
    TVIX is in WAVE 3 of 3 down. Wave 3 will extend 1.61% of Wave 1, typically. This amounts to about 54 points subtracted from Wave 2, or a price target of $12.
    The $VIX on Friday 3rd did close a gap and hold Support 1 at $16, forming a bullish hammer. This sets up well for next week, or the 180 time frame the week of Feb 8th.
    I expect to work off the oversold condition no higher in the $VIX then 25, before making the final low push to $12 in TVIX to complete Wave 3.
    There is possibly a credit event this week with Greece, that can change this set up scenario.

  • INTC Price Target $8 by 2012-What??? [View instapost]
    Analysis Update March 15th-Nomura Equity Research analyst Romit Shah this morning cut his rating on shares of Intel (INTC) to Neutral from Buy, writing that “every major PC OEM missed and guided below consensus in Q1,” suggesting Intel will forecast Q2 below expectations, he thinks.

    New Update-Bill Gross sells all Government debt and moves to 100% cash. Investment in TMV is a no brainer at this point as rates will sky rocket looking for investors.

    The question is, how high do rates need to go to bring in investment given the obvious to all who pay attention, the US government is broke and can't repay you.

  • FEDEX FDX TARGET $106, AFTER GOES TO $60 FIRST [View instapost]
    Think about this; stock only has to go up 10 points for me to be wrong, yet down 30 points for me to be right. Plus, I indicate the stock is undervalued right now, a good long term investment.
    \Who in their right mind, given the nothing bad matters enviornment we are in, would make that call.

    TKATHLINASTOCKS will make that call my friend. Call it like I see it.

  • Green Mountain Coffee: A Prime Short Candidate [View article]
    I was just looking at the balance sheet this morning and agree with your assessment. Give me your thoughts on the big jump in Goodwill from September to today? Looks like fuzzy math to me.

  • Will the Dow Have Its First 9th Consecutive Weekly Gain Since 1995? [View article]
    That last president that said no to the Anglo American Banking Cartel was John F Kennedy. John Kennedy for some reason got religion and decided and spoke out against the secrete societies and the banking elite. He began moving the US away from the Fed and printing dollars backed by silver. Not to mention he took on the military complex and was planning on pulling us out of VietNam.
    Once the elite realized their hand picked puppet had gone off the reservation, somebody got his head blown off by a simple lone crazy gunman with a cheap Italian rifle. The Banking cartel and the military leaders lucked out. Right? Kennedy speaking about this subject.
